It’s going to be an exciting one on Tuesday night in the Lone Star State for sure, as this is one of the highest ‘totals’ that you’re going to see this early in the season at 214.5. The Rockets have been playing great ball offensively, including dropping point totals of 117, 124, and 131 over the course of the last few games. G James Harden is still going off to the tune of 24.1 points per game, but he isn’t alone in the effort, as F Chandler Parsons, F Patrick Patterson, C Omer Asik, and G Jeremy Lin are all averaging double digits in scoring as well. In the end though, we still don’t see how the Lakers are getting this much respect. They’ve got a decent core, but they also just don’t have the talent at the point guard spot right now to keep this offense flying up and down the court. Until G Steve Nash comes back into the fold, it’s going to be hard to back what, in our eyes, is nothing more than an above average team with a player on it in G Kobe Bryant that refuses to lose. Unfortunately, that isn’t going to get the job done on most nights, and this likely won’t be one of those nights where the Black Mamba takes over.
